The Flying House, full title Time Classroom, Adventures of The Flying House (タイム教室 トンデラハウスの大冒険 Taimu Kyōshitsu: Tondera Housu no Daibōken ?), is an anime television series produced by Tatsunoko Productions in Japan and distributed by the Christian Broadcasting Network in the United States.[1]


The Story

Corkey, Angie, SIR, Justin, and Professor Bumble

The series begins in the middle of a game of hide and seek, as a young boy named Justin Casey (Gen) finishes counting and begins searching for his friends Angela (usually called "Angie") and Corkey Roberts (Kanna and Tsukubo Natsuyama). As he searches for the brother and sister in a wooded area, a storm occurrs all of a sudden. Justin manages to sneak up on the two before the rain starts pouring, forcing them to run for cover. They eventually find a house in the wooded area, previously unseen according to Justin. At first glance it appears nobody is home, until they discover a robot named Solar Ion Robot (Kadenchin), or the acronym SIR. They soon meet the owner of the house, Professor Humphrey Bumble (Dr. Tokio Taimu), who introduces the children to his greatest creation, a time machine. Professor Bumble's attempt at recreating Benjamin Franklin's famous lightning experiment with the use of a kite flying outside the house to get the machine working only leads to a temporary change in SIR's personality before sending the entire house on course for the past. The children never realize how long the journey back home would be due to Professor Bumble's misguidance and errors in time travel, but in the meantime they witness and participate (to little or no consequences) in numerous events in the Bible's New Testament, from John the Baptist's birth to the rise of the Apostle Paul.

Eventually, they make it home the exact same way they traveled into the past in the first place. SIR gets a knock in the head which, again, makes him go berserk and attack the time-machine. Ironically, this attack fixes it in such a way that it finally sends the whole crew back to their own time period, and the show ends, with SIR having reverted to normal by the end of the trip.
